Oh Yea

Well its confirmed Ive got frame sag.
Contacted airstream today and If they do the work I wont see my trailer until sometime in October and lighten my pocket approx $1000 for the kit and labor. Don't think October is going to fall in my Time Frame very well and fortunatly I have everything I need to fix this myself. Its just going to be alot of work. OH JOY. Good thing is when its finished I will know how to fix frame sag and can tell others. Looks like the rest of my weekend is not going to go as I had planned for it to but I can get some of my interior painted.

Im going to take pictures of everything, Good thing I have a digital camera.

We are going to have so much fun,

I think my frame is sagging a little also... however, mine is a furniture problem; my chest has fallen toward my drawers!

OK, I'll get serious now!

I can't say that I envy you but you will probably have a very good job when itís completed! You will have learned a lot and you will at least know just how solid every thing is after it's finished.

Thereís just something about doing it your self that gives a satisfaction of knowing that itís been done right!

Looking forward to seeing the pictures!

I hope before you start you have looked at the threads on the rear sag problem.
There are two sources for the rear end sag (usally assoicated with the rear bath units) and the frame kit will only fix the problem if the sag is caused by the frame buckeling.

My problem is the frame has buckled at the axles. I am getting the frame kit next friday and it will be the following week that it gets installed. I would do it on the weekend but I have to work Such is life.

Good thing is that almost all of my interior has been removed and once I have streighten the frame I will start putting it all back together.

There is nothing like a job done right. I wonder how much extra weight this kit is going to add. Not that it matters for towing.
